Quote from: countryman on July 11, 2019, 02:45:13 PMWow! That's a lot of money for cable TV service.Here in Germany the cable fee is much lower (maybe 200 € a year, would be close to 225 $), but then there is an obligatory license fee of 18 € per month and household to finance the public broadcasting instutions. These can be received via air or satellite for no added costs in return. Pay TV has not caught on here for general programs, but football/soccer fans get fleeced extra...A couple of formerly free to air commercial stations have begun to charge for HD service also.

Quote from: andre_janew on August 11, 2019, 05:14:19 PMI always wondered how digital TV could have over 1,000 possible channels. Well, I finally figured it out. You have 68 main channels (2 thru 69) and if each one had 15 sub channels, multiply 15 and 68, and there is how you come up with over 1,000 possible channels.
